Like  The Secret Adversary ,  The Man in the Brown Suit  is less a novel of pure detection than it is a thriller typical of its period. It follows the adventures of Anne Beddingfeld as she becomes involved in a world of diamond thieves, murderers, and political intrigue in this tale set in exotic South Africa.  Colonel Race  makes his first appearance in the novel; he later appears in  Cards on the Table , Sparkling Cyanide , and  Death on the Nile .

Recorded here is the complete, original story as penned by Fitzgerald in the early 1920s, published originally in Colliers and finally collected in the popular Tales of the Jazz Age. One might call Benjamin Button an odd addition to the collection, as he was born in 1860, the year prior...

I’m a failed poet. Maybe every novelist wants to write poetry first, finds he can’t and then tries the short story which is the most demanding form after poetry. And failing that, only then does he take up novel writing.” —William Faulkner   Winner of the National Book Award Forty-two stories make up this magisterial collection by the writer who stands at the pinnacle of modern American fiction. Compressing an epic expanse of vision into hard and wounding narratives, Faulkner’s...

But no one–including Tom–knew just how much! Whether he’s running an illegal candy store or earning a reputation as the fastest potato peeler, Tom’s great brain never falters...
